In the heart of Erbil, the Canopy Corridor project stands as a beacon of environmental stewardship and community collaboration. Spearheaded by Hasar Partners, this ambitious project aims to transform the urban landscape of Erbil into a thriving green oasis, countering the challenges of air pollution, high temperatures, and biodiversity loss.

|Q1 to Q4
Erbil’s urban environment faces significant ecological stress, marked by low air quality, minimal tree cover, and vulnerability to extreme weather. The Canopy Corridor addresses these challenges head-on, leveraging Hasar’s four-year expertise in afforestation.
The Canopy Corridor initiative will plant up to 10K fast-growing, impactful trees along the 120m Road. These trees will create a verdant canopy, enhancing biodiversity, improving air quality, and providing a natural respite from urban stress. The project is not just about planting trees; it’s about nurturing a greener future for Erbil and its inhabitants.
